When it comes down to being the best player in Call of Duty Warzone, it all lies in the hands of the hardware and skill set of the player.
Warzone features several exclusive weapons to unlock with certain skill sets and achievements. These weapons are almost bespoke killing machines.
From the M79 Launcher to the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow, we will explore all of the special weapons in the warzone (see also ‘What Is The Best SMG In Warzone?‘).
Certain criteria have to be met to be able to unlock weapons in a warzone (see also ‘How To Change FOV In Warzone‘), such as a special weapon in a Call of Duty warzone.
The weapon is not purchasable with in-game currency but through various challenges and weapons attained in the game.
One of the more unique and exclusive weapons in Warzone is the M79 Launcher which can be unlocked by achieving a Gold Star rank on all destruction matches, Achieving an Expert level in primary weapons, And a Survival match wins with it equipped.
The M79 launcher is a versatile weapon that deals heavy damage up close making it great for taking out enemies quickly or taking down vehicles.
The M79 Grenade Launcher
The M79 Grenade Launcher is a type of weapon that is utilized predominately for the purpose of eliminating distant targets.
It is a shoulder-fired weapon that fires grenades that are effective in damaging enemies and destroying structures.
The grenades are fired from the weapon’s magazine.
One of the advantages of using the M79 is its ability to rid an area of hostile players or fortifications quickly and easily.
The grenade has a long-range, so you can take out multiple opponents with ease before they have a chance to react.
Additionally, the fragmentation caused by the grenade affects all nearby enemies in addition to any target that was hit directly.
As such, it is a great weapon to use in close-quarters combat.
The nail gun is a weapon that is used in conjunction with a tool to fire nails at high speeds.
It is a very effective weapon for taking down targets in close quarters, as it can easily penetrate through tough materials such as armor.
It is recommended that players of Warzone (see also ‘Who Is The Best Warzone Player?‘) who do not own BOCW attempt any gameplay feats, including unlocking the Nail Gun, in the Plunder mode as opposed to the Battle Royale mode.
Plunder is where the game was originally released.
You will have the ability to select some weapons for your loadout, and you will also have an unlimited supply of respawns, both of which should make things simpler for you.
Another benefit of using the nail gun is its ability to cause immense damage quickly and efficiently.
You can easily take out enemies by shooting them in the head or torso, and the nails tend to grow in size over time, so you will continue dealing damage even after they die.
Be sure to use caution when utilizing this weapon if you are not careful.
R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow
The R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow is a weapon that is primarily used for taking down enemies from a distance.
It is a crossbow that fires special bolts that are infused with an electric current.
As such, the electric bolt can cause immense damage to targets in close quarters as well as distant enemies.
The bolt also has a high impact rate, so it will often penetrate through armor and inflict significant damage on the target beneath it.
The R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow is a weapon that can be unlocked by achieving a Silver Star rank on all destruction matches, Achieving an Expert level in Primary Weapons, And a Survival match wins with it equipped.
The ballistic knife is a weapon that is primarily used for taking down enemies from a distance.
It is a special type of knife that is designed to fire projectiles at high speeds.
The ballistic knife can easily penetrate through armor and inflict significant damage on the target beneath it.
The drawback to using this weapon is its low accuracy, meaning you will often miss your target in close-quarters combat.
However, if you can take advantage of the ballistic knife’s strengths in other areas of gameplay, it can be an extremely effective weapon choice against opponents in warzone mode.
The EXOCET is a weapon that can be found in the Advanced Warfare downloadable content.
It is an advanced weapon that fires a projectile similar to a missile and has a grappling hook attached to the end of it.
To use it, players must first approach an opponent while they are in close proximity to them, and then they must activate the grapple by holding down their primary fire button.
After it has been activated, they will have to let go of it in order to launch the projectile.
Another exclusive weapon from Advanced Warfare is only available if you achieve level 50 in a warzone.
The Devilsaur is a weapon that is designed to exclusively be used in warzone mode.
It is a special type of weapon that shoots explosive rounds at high speeds which can easily take down targets from a distance.
The downside of this weapon is its low accuracy; meaning you will often miss your target in close quarters combat.
However if you can take advantage of the Devilsaur’s strengths in other areas of gameplay, it can be an extremely effective weapon choice against opponents in warzone mode.
When playing in warzone mode, players have access to a wide variety of weapons, each of which has the potential to be useful in a specific set of circumstances.
However, they are all working toward the same objective, which is to quickly eliminate their foes and secure victory.
This brings today’s article to a close and wraps up the discussion of exactly what a special weapon is within the context of the Call of Duty warzone.
